Bavuma prime scored for South Africa with 52 off 103 balls as India bowled out South Africa for 197 within the remaining session on day three of the first Test right here on Tuesday.
“Look, what happened has happened. In terms of the bowling and the batting, obviously coming tomorrow with the ball, that first session is going to be super key.
“I feel the depth that we introduced right this moment off the sphere by way of the ball, that is the depth that we are able to purchase.
“Hopefully, there’s a reachable target for the batters to kind of chase down…obviously as batters we’re going to have to knuckle down and make it super hard for the Indian bowlers.”
For India, Mohammad Shami was at his classic finest, grabbing 5/44 runs in 16 overs.
“He’s a world class bowler, we have seen him do this around the world. As batters, we got to back our defence, front up and cut out those soft dismissals. But credit to the bowler if he bowls those great deliveries.”
He additional stated India bowlers exploited the circumstances fantastically.
“The first day’s wicket was on the slower side. There was a lot of grass, so the movement off the wicket was not exaggerated…Credit goes to the Indian bowlers led by Shami.
“Also credit score to their batters who actually utilized themselves and have been in a position to put them in commanding place on day one,” he added.
